Huh? Your question is terse, to an extreme. What exactly are you asking?

I have installed laminate flooring in my rig. Wood looking, but composite material none the less.
Please ask your question in a full manner and sentence.

Sorry I hit the wrong button and posted this by accident. I am wondering what flooring people use and how they terminate at the door.

I installed vinyl planks from Costco. I drilled out the rivets on the threshold and placed the threshold over the vinyl plank. You will need longer rivets to replace or switch to wood screws. A couple of tips: leave the carpet as it is the perfect thickness of an under layer, and be sure to leave the recommended 1/4" space between the edge of the plank and the wall so the floor floats.

I am considering installing a cork flooring that should be non slip.  I think removing the carpet could be a demanding exercise but wondering if leaving it in place would invite mold formation.  Anyone have an opinion?

 

Also, from the age of my 17 SD some of the doors have expanded on their bottoms.  The half inch paper faced particle board is half inch thick.  The flooring is 3/8 inch and could be a replacement for some of the upper cabinet doors using 1/8 shims for the hardware.  Has anyone out there found a better replacement?  I already built a replacement for the bathroom door and made the trailer 10 pounds lighter.

I wouldn't want carpet under flooring to wick moisture.  However lots of people have done it.  I have the vinyl sheet floor (luckily) and I used 12x24 stick down vinyl tiles from Lowes.  So far it's holding up great and looks good too.  I also removed the door threshold to put the vinyl under and re-riveted in place.  I had to drill the old rivets out by going all the way through the floor then I used Rv caulk to seal the holes after the new rivets were installed.
